The man accused of raping his 18 year-old younger sister (name withheld) shall remain in police custody for the remainder of this month and next month, according to a magistrate at the Katutura Court.
The man was arrested at the beginning of this year after his sister told their parents that he had forced himself on her.
He’s understood to have been under the influence of alcohol and made a confession to the police at the time of his arrest. With the help of a State lawyer, he is expected to enter a not guilty plea.
He remains in police custody until his next appearance on May 17.
